Help to shaft the likes of Novartis and Monsanto by not buying GM foods and helping to support the farmers not using their monster seeds that destroy indigenous crops and force thousands of farmers to comut suicide.
This is the company that brought you Agent Orange remember so they have good skill sets when it comes to destroying things.
A list of resources follows. Particularly useful for those in the States who have had it dictated to them by their government a while back that GM food cannot be labeled as such...ahh the land of the free blah blah blah.
Apparently Colorado are trying to do something to change that and California are having a referendum

Avoiding any GM products whether it be soy or corn is helpful.
If you haven't watched this excellent reportage on the evil empire of Monsanto then make it a must. It specifically concerns roundup ready and the attack on indigenous Mexican corn from the USA
One does not have to join a special group of limited number (no names mentioned) to help to tackle important issues like this, aka the readdress of global criminals such as Monsanto. There exist many fine and unpretentious organisations that are diligent and hard working in their attempts to take on repellent corporate behemoths like Monsanto....
In this particular case one such group is this one
http://www.gmwatch.org/ Monsanto was created in 1901. The company's first product was the artificial sweetener saccharin. In the 1920s Monsanto expanded into basic industrial chemicals. During the Second World War Monsanto contributed to research on uranium for the Manhattan Project, which lead to the atomic bomb. Monsanto continued to operate a nuclear facility for the U.S. government until the late 1980s. During the 1940s Monsanto also become a leading manufacturer of synthetic fibres and plastics, including polystyrene - ranked fifth in the EPA’s list of chemicals whose production generates the most total hazardous waste. From the 1940s onwards Monsanto was one of the top 10 US chemical companies. read more on their website.
Supporting groups like this and being vigilant about where one sources one food and spreading the word is an excellent place to begin and to enlighten individuals and small communities and encourage projects is indeed an excellent idea.
